- Ka hale Lehua was a wonderful place to stay while visiting Hanalei. The true Hawaiian flair and feel of the home was exactly what we wanted to experience in Kauai. The home had everything you needed, lots of linens, comfy beds, very clean all over, stocked kitchen cabinets etc....and was big enough for all of us and I loved having the beach access right in front of us. The surrounding veranda is a very special peaceful spot to take in the mountains and waterfalls view. Lots of nice grassy area to play soccer with kids and park car. I loved the coconut trees and foliage all around. It was also an easy walk to all the shops and restaurants or to meet for Napali coast tour etc at the Pier. Weke Road is definitely the better spot than right on the Kuhio Hwy. The only thing I would recommend to add is ceiling fans. It is downright hot during the day, there is a beautiful cross breeze when the screens are open, but working in the kitchen or bathrooms are hot. Some minor things: there were no right size coffee filters - no fun to learn 1st morning you wake up for folks that need their coffee....LOL. Some beach chairs need updating, small ants a nuisance, outdoor shower area could use a little renovation, the dishwasher and dryer stopped working the day before we left - meaning we had to unpack all the dirty dishes and wash all by hand last minute before we left and we weren't able to dry all the beach towels we had washed. We didn't meet any of the supporting rental agents, it would have been nice to get a hello or a how you doing while there - but we did get clear and ontime directions for access by email before our travel date. Hanalei is a place we treasured and we can't wait to be back and yes we would absolutely stay at Ka hale Lehua again. Overall we LOVED it!
